Clearly inspired by one of my all-time afavorite films, Defending Your Life, Scott Spiegel, the director of Hostel 3 and co-writer of Evil Dead II, is to executive produce the afterlife fantasy film Welcome to Purgatory.
Cupsogue Pictures announced today that The Graves and Cabin Fever: Patient Zero‘s Jillian Murray, pictured, has landed one of the lead roles as the character of ‘Danni’.
Directed by Gene Fallaize, Welcome to Purgatory also stars Nathan Jones, Jack O’Halloran, Tory Kittles and Stephen Marcus.
“Welcome to Purgatory follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor and Danni – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by trusty Guardian Paul. They find the afterlife in ruins amidst a growing war between Good and Evil. All the rules of the Afterlife have been broken, and they must find a way to make things right, before Heaven is ruined for the rest of time.“
A sequel is also in development as Welcome to Purgatory II: The Journey to Hell.
